power. this argument, of course, was in great -- with the fact that obama administration and congress had disclaimed there was anything about the law that was a tax. >> when you went in to the argument, and thought about the case, you mentioned you were conscious about where you thought your stronger and weaker points were. how vulnerability did you think you were on that. >> can imagine almost anything. but that was not something that was keeping me up at night. and you just, you know, as a lawyer you got to be practical about this. and, you know, you look at, by the way, by the time we got to the supreme court we had a lot of models for opinions that, you know, upheld the law and a lot of models for opinions that struck the law down. and the overwheeling them was, you know, even the judges that july held the law didn't think much of the taxes argument, anne, you know, had dynamics where judges would reject the government's taxing argument but specifically say we will defend it on commerce and necessary and proper. i think in the broader public debate the debate about the individual

alone in the security effort. we founded the obama administration the strength of the renewed cooperation to face the common problems under the principles of shared response of the. but there is no doubt that much more must be done. particularly when it comes to dismantling the financial operation of criminal organizations in the u.s. and reducing the american demand. we should get to the root of the problem which is the increasing demand for the legal growth in the u.s.. as long as the market continues to growing money will keep flowing to the pockets of the criminals. and of course the best way will be to reduce the demand in the u.s.. but frankly speaking that is not possible. alternative solutions must be considered for the massive profits of the criminal organizations, and that includes the market alternatives that prevent drug trafficking and were causing so much violence. there is another problem that has become vital to the security of mexico and many other nations. how did the uncontrolled weapons to the criminal organizations. with limited access to key factor in the

would not be genetic action until a new administration comes in, either romney or barack obama in the second term. secondly, the administration has been certainly cautious about a sort of intervention, military intervention in syria. libya and syria are apples and oranges that they are quite different. libya was isolated regionally and internationally in a way that syria is not. it has the support of her rant, support russia as well as other countries that complicate the regional level and international level. finally, there've been calls to record the safe havens. i'm not a military expert, but everyone i console say that requires a no-fly zone. syria has mr. advanced and sophisticated system provided by the russians that libya did not have. there'll be much more difficult and dangerous for an assertive u.s. coalition coalition to go when in terms of military intervention to create safe havens, establish no-fly zones. even in libya it was nec and syria again is just a much more difficult situation militarily. >> host: the title of your book, "syria: the fall of the house of assad," w

gains and dividend rates together, creating party between gross stocks and dividend, stocks the obama administration latest budget calls for untimely rates and allowing the rate on dividends arise to 43.4% while the top rate on capital gains would be 23.8. i'd like to get each of your thoughts on this proposal. how would a nearly 20 percentage point disparity between the capital gains and dividend affect investment decisions. mr. broadway? >> well, i guess i tend to be a skeptic on all of this the country has had vastly differentiates for capital gains in ordinary income that had rates where they -- had times where the rates were similar. i don't know that the -- i'm reluck assistant to say that whether you had a differential or had the same rate that would have a significant impact on the overall performance of the economy. i think the overall performance of the economy is far too complex to describe the substantial difference based on the taxation of capital gains versus other income. >> just to show you how would i am, to the calculation i think it's twenty five years ago, i wrote

the obama administration's response to the arab spring? >> in some regards, yes. i want to take a moment to commend tim as i have before in his leadership on after the tragedy on april 16th at virginia tech. at the time tim and all virginians united, learned from what went wrong and improved the safety of our colleges, and so, tim, i commend you again for that. now, in so sofaras national sciewrs, there's a lot of challenges facing us. we had an uprising in iran years ago when people wanted a free and just society in iran, and i just wish the president said we're on the side of those who want to change that thee i don'- theocracy. when ronald reagan called the soviet union the evil empire, that gave heart to the prisoners. if iran gets nuclear weapons, that needs to be prevented. you have worries about particularly in syria, a chemical weapon stockpiles, you have the tax on embassies and consulates in libya and egypt and elsewhere around the world. it's why it's so dangerous and wrong to be playing these political games with our armed services. we need to be strong, a strong econo
